Description Joe Harrington 2002-01-04 12:23:34 EST
When given negative geometry specifications (like -0-0) gnome-terminal
places the window on the desktop adjacent to the current window.  In the
example given, the window should appear in the lower-right corner, but
actually appears in the upper-left corner of the desktop below and to the
right of the current one.  The behavior is similar if only one part of the
position is negative: -0+0 should put the window in the upper-right corner,
but it appears in the upper-left corner of the desktop to the right.  In
some particular cases, and inconsistently in those cases, such a misplaced
terminal will also be resized to a much smaller size.

This is under gnome-core- on a 7.2 i386 with all updates.

This will most likely only be fixed with GNOME 2.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-01 15:06:40 EST
I recently made this work for GNOME 2. It's very hard to make it work for 1.x
though. We'll get the fix when we upgrade.
